Industrial Air cannons are a pneumatic flow aid. In a typical application, air is compressed to 100 psi in a tank. When triggered, the valve opens and releases a high-magnitude blast that displaces stalled material.
Industrial Air cannons have a lot of power, but no control and limited results.
The nozzle extends into bin, so material can enter the system. The system needs frequent cleaning and costly replacements.
Industrial Air cannons uses (and wastes) high volumes of air. The peak force lasts only 1/1000th of a second – subsequent discharge is wasted energy.
Only suitable for vessels that can withstand high pressure. The strong recoil causes metal fatigue.
AirSweep works on all materials, and can be used for all vessels and applications
AirSweep installation was easy, and the units have saved the company a lot of man hours. My experience totally exceeded my expectations – a 10 out of 10!
The AirSweep installation was pretty straightforward and I would absolutely recommend it. In fact, we are looking into expanding to use the system in other parts of our plant.
We are experiencing a 62.52% reduction in flour flush and 42.50% reduction in labor, all directly attributed to the AirSweeps…the flush material reduction alone is around $200K. Pretty awesome little devices!
As a distributor, we like that Control Concepts, Inc. takes risks and will try new things to make our customers happy. They want to ensure success, and the quality of the Airsweep for tough and sticky materials is superb. We have been very happy with our projects and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.
Having sold thousands of Airsweep, to clients who sometimes buy 60 at a time, I can tell you this is the best piece of equipment out there to solve your material flow issues. We have repeat customers who just won’t buy anything else.
